SS report 5-29-12 Smoking action for white/striped bass
We took out repeat customers, Brian, Joe, and George today.
It was our best trip this year so far.
The action was late getting started for us as because when we arrived at beautiful Beacon Bay marina, the wind had kicked up pretty strong.
So we stayed in sheltered water for a while and watched the tree tops for signs of the wind letting up.
I'm, not sure how long we had to wait, but close to an hour I bet. The wind did give us a break and eventually died down enough for us to venture out to the fishing grounds.
It took a couple of stops, but when we found the fish it super good action. Hungry white/striped bass were schooled up big time and these guys made it count.
Joe, the youngest of the crew was deadly on the fish today. He stayed hooked up almost constantly with white bass or stripers and at one stop hit four big stripers in four drops of the slab, what a fisherman!
He put it on Paw paw and dad like white bass on a shad!
Soon they had 60+white bass and 15 stripers and we were about out of cooler and live well space.
It seemed after the wind died down every stop we made produced good fishing.
In all they caught over 150 white bass and about 20 stripers.
Brian called it about 11:00, and said let's go it's getting hot and these guys have a truck load of fish to clean.
I'm looking forward to next year, or sooner, when these guys come again!
See you on the water.
